Chapter 202 – What goes around comes around
Because of Woosung’s announcement, the drop in bitcoin price didn’t even reach the media.
1BTC 75 cents.
Jung Jinsup got drunk and Choi Gichul just stared at the monitor in shock. He looked at the price over and over again, but it still remained the same.
The Bit Trading office was dark and silent.
Then all of a sudden, rich men from the KYLO meeting stormed in. The employees looked shocked.
“What’s going on?”
“I heard the bitcoin dropped to less than a dollar. Is it all over then?”
“My money! What about my money?”
Choi Gichul remained silent.
“Hey, say something!”
“Choi Gichul! Don’t you know how much money you borrowed from me?”
“Tell us what’s happening!”
When he didn’t answer, one of the men grabbed Choi Gichul.
Choi Gichul finally opened his mouth.
He replied in a condescending voice, “Are you crazy? I’m Choi Gichul. Daeyang’s Choi Gichul! Who do you think you are!”
The man sneered. “Daeyang? Daeyang is no more. You’re a nobody now. Don’t you watch the news?”
The man took out his phone and showed Choi Gichul the news articles.
[Breaking News] Prosecutors raid Daeyang headquarter.
[Breaking News] Daeyang accused of at least 12 crimes.
[Breaking News] Choi Taemin arrested for assault, embezzlement, and attempted murder.
Choi Gichul has been busy with the bitcoin situation he hadn’t realized what was happening. The man growled at him.
“Now, do you see?”
All the men glared at him.
“You better pay us back our money, or else you will end up in a ditch just like your brother.”
The man pushed Choi Gichul to the ground. Choi Gichul couldn’t think straight, but he knew one thing. There was only one man who could save him.
1 BTC 9 cents.
It was now less than 10 cents. Bitcoin at one point was worth 10,000 dollars, but no one cared. The public and the media’s focus was now on Woosung’s new digital currency, Rie.
President Lee Parksung was also under an investigation.
Jang Gwangchul’s days were busy.
“Based on my calculation, it will cost a billion dollars to carry out the nation-wide audit.”
Woosung replied, “That’s not bad. I expected it to be much more expensive.”
“How are the public reacting?”
“Most supports the idea. Of course, the other companies hate us now. Some are even calling us communists.”
“Haha, we need to use the media wisely. We need to make any companies that refuse look like a corrupt business.”
“It’s a perfect plan. It could really work.”
“We will destroy everything. Then, we will take all of them.”
Jang Gwangchul sighed deeply, “Wow, it’s so exciting.”
“The public is already on the edge because of the Daeyang situation, and this will be helpful for our plan. We need to continue revealing how corrupt the large companies are. At some point, those corporations will not have any options other than to cooperate with the audit. Gwangchul, what you need to do is to have a detailed plan for this.”
“And you don’t care how much it costs?”
“Haha, of course. I made a lot of money recently so we’re all set.”
Jang Gwangchul could guess what it was from.
“The price plummeted, so how could I have made money from it?”
“You could have sold everything you had, which would explain why the price dropped so much.”
“Do you really think I had that many coins?”
Jang Gwangchul nodded and replied, “If anybody could, it would be you.”
Woosung laughed in delight. “Well, you’re pretty much bang on.”
“Hmm. So you probably made billions again?”
“You got it!”
“Then please work on the plan. I would prefer to start with Daeyang. It should be a piece of cake at this point.”
Woosung arrived at the Bit Trading office.
It was late and the office was empty except for Jung Jinsup and Choi Gichul, who were sitting quietly.
This was arranged by Woosung. He called ahead and asked them to wait for him.
It was time for revenge.
Woosung walked in with a smile.
“Haha, hello there.”
Jung Jinsup greeted him, “P, president Kang.”
“Jinsup, why are you so pale?”
Choi Gichul turned to Woosung.
He asked him weakly, “What happened to the request I made to you?”
“I’m working on it.”
Choi Gichul was truly powerless now. Daeyang was over. Choi Taemin was under investigation. Choi Gichul replied meekly.
“I, I see…”
“You must have worked really hard. You look so sickly. I feel bad.”
Jung Jinsup asked, “President Kang, I…”
Woosung interrupted him.
“I already know. You broke our promise and got involved in the bitcoin trading. Unfortunately, you lost.”
“Y, you know then.”
“Let’s get out of here. Both of you. Let’s go for a drink.”
1BTC 50 cents.
Woosung was the only hope these men had left.
Choi Gichul replied, “A, alright.”
Expensive steak restaurant.
A meal started at 30 dollars per person.
Woosung watched them eat. Choi Gichul and Jung Jinsup must have been starving as they ate silently.
Afterward, Jung Jinsup tapped his stomach.
“It was a great meal.”
“Have some more.”
“I’m too full.”
Woosung turned to Choi Gichul.
“How are you doing, President Choi?”
“I had enough as well. When will we be able to talk business?”
“Haha, what’s the hurry? The night is still young. Let’s go to the next place. I made a reservation.”
An expensive bar.
It was completely empty.
Woosung explained, “I bought this place for the night.”
The two men were confused. Why was Woosung being so nice to them?
Woosung called the hostess.
“Please bring your best drinks and girls.”
Beautiful women walked in one after another. Choi Gichul and Jung Jinsup stared in awe.
Woosung said to them, “Pick whoever you like. You can pick as many as you want.”
Jung Jinsup hesitated for a second before he chose two women. Choi Gichul did the same. The rest of whom they did not pick left the room. The women poured whiskey in the men’s glass.
Woosung raised his glass. “Cheers. It’s a great day.”
The men drank. When they finally turned red, Woosung slowly opened his mouth.
“Now, it’s time to talk.”
